My 2009 Kia Sportage was not driven for about 3 months while I was on deployment. So the bettery died and I had to recharge it yesterday to drive it. Everything seems okay except that the audio system has no power (does not light up at all). I called the dealer this morning and they said a fuse for the audio system is probably blown up. I know the fuse box ... Read More
I have looked at Sportages for a number of years. Last year I rented one while in Florida and was horribly disappointed. Probably a 2009 Model... it had awful headrests that I could never get adjusted and a very discouraging 6-18 mpg. Now that the 2011's are out I need some info regarding mpg and general impressions. The first 2011 Sportage I saw had 3 headrests across the rear seating and ... Read More
I don't know what to believe anymore... Please tell me that Autoweek got the dates wrong for the Optima. If you read the article, it says that the Optima is out "next year", and then the Hybrid out "1st quarter of 2011". Aren't they really the same timeframe? This is contrary to what Kia has "officially" put on their website. Also the Sportage 2.0T date could be wrong as well...this article ... Read More
I have been having a problem lately when I turn on my Air Cond on my 2007 Kia Sportage. It runs cool for a while and then the coolness fades out and the air is at the same temperature as inside the car. I see a note from Midnighttaxi on 11/2009 where he says there is a temperature sensor under the dash and he had to have his fixed and it ... Read More
How do I remove the plastic inner panel on the rear hatch of my 2009 Kia Sportage without wrecking anything? I am going to install a back-up camera because the factory window tint in the back is so dark that it is hard to back up out of parking spots safely. I need to remove the panel to get to the wiring to hook up to the camera. The instructions say ... Read More
I would like to improve the sound of the stock cd/Sirius radio in my 2009 Sportage. I don't want to replace the in-dash unit with a smaller, din-sized after-market deck, so does anyone know/have experience if adding a decent amp is a worthwhile upgrade? Or will it just amplify the bad sound? With the rear speakers in the door, they are almost completely lost even with the fader turned toward the ... Read More
give me their impressions of the 2009 Kia Sportage with 4cyl. automatic and either 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive? If you can comment, please indicate if you thought the 4 cyl. was adequate to pull a small trailer with passengers. I'm trying to decide on a small crossover that is decent on gas and under $20,000 after tax. Thanks!
Thanks for the insights. I had to put the Sportage on hold because I couldn't get the price I needed for our minivan. Also I noticed the lease deal on the Sportage is not as good now as it was in July. So I'll keep an eye on incentives as we get closer to the end of the year--hopefully they'll increase. I don't mind getting a 2008 on closeout since I ... Read More
